Sculpture in an Orange Garden a FOOD Week success story | Photos, video

ABOUT 700 people attended the first day of the weekend-long Sculpture in an Orange Garden event on Saturday.

It is the second year the sculpture display in the gardens of the Rosemont property at Springside has been held as part of FOOD Week.

Organiser Ellen Fisher said there were about 300 works from 72 sculptors on show with prices ranging from $78,000 to $40.

While the most expensive item stayed put she said a lot of work had been sold.

"We've sold a number around $2000-$3000 and quite a lot more lower than that," she said.

"[Orange sculptor] Peter Kasper has sold all but one. His work costs several thousands."


Mrs Fisher said the exhibition had seen visitors from Victoria, South Australian and Queensland.

"People are certainly interested in the variety," she said.

Two schools, Mullion Creek and Nashdale public schools, also displayed works at the event.
